Kitchen Update - Week 3

Week three started with more patching.  Do not underestimate the number of gaping holes we had in our walls.

Mum knocks out the crumbling bits of wall so she can patch it with some drywall.
I don't know if you can tell or not, but the walls in the kitchen are heavily textured.  Since many of the holes had to be completely replaced with drywall, we bought some spray-on texture stuff to try and make everything look at least somewhat uniform.  The one we used was called Homax Wall Texture Spray and it was pretty amazing.  It looks a little weird going on, but when it is painted you can hardly tell the difference between the original wall and the replacement drywall.  I'd definitely recommend it.

Kylie helps to make the drywall match the plaster walls.

Except for new countertop, the back part of the kitchen is finished.

We're going to paint the basement door with chalkboard paint so we have a handy place to jot down notes.

Kylie accidentally discovered that there was door moulding behind that weird makeshift closet, so we tore the whole thing down.  I wish all of the trim had remained unpainted - it's so beautiful!

That's all for week three - check back tomorrow for week four.
